Superconductivity

When cooled below a certain critical temperature, some materials become perfect conductors. This phenomena is known as superconductivity and was first successfully described by Bardeen, Cooper and Schrieffer in 1957 (now known as BCS theory). Electrons form cooper pairs and undergo phonon interactions with the metallic lattice.

The slides outline superconductivity and the BCS theory.
